Rutherford Works Code Camps are educational, five day programs for middle and high school students that strive to create a fun, engaging, and immersive environment in which they are challenged to think about technology. Our program teaches students to create with code. By giving students the resources needed for success, we hope they will become leaders of the high-tech Tennessee workforce.
The weeklong day-camp will be conducted from 9 AM to 3 PM each day. At the end of the camp, the students will host parents for a “Demo Day” where they will exhibit the skills they have learned.
With over 1,000 tech jobs going unfilled in Middle Tennessee every year, your student can get a jump start toward a high wage, high demand career.
